Athletics

Columbia Elementary School Athletics

Athletics, whether team-based or individual, are a great activity for children that provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence, can motivate children to excel academically, and can help build social skills. Participation also can teach children the benefits of goal-setting and practice.

 

Physical Activity

Physical activity is the most obvious benefit of sports participation. Children often spend too much time watching television or playing video games. But sports practices and games provide an opportunity for exercise that can help keep kids in shape and healthy.

Social Skills

Sports participation can help children develop social skills that will benefit them throughout their entire lives. They learn to interact not only with other children their age but also with older individuals in their coaches and sports officials. Kids learn leadership skills, team-building skills, and communication skills that will help them in school, their future career and personal relationships.
